  • New Piece (First Non-Experimental Piece)

    I made a simple work of "art" (if you want to call it that) in Photoshop 7. I actually made all of it. The colors arent supposed to "compliment" each other by the way. Well enough blabbering...here it is, tell me what you think:

    Pretty cool, in theory. I really like the tree.
    Creativity is taking what is and bringing in what isn't.

      If this is meant to convey "Africa" then it works. That is my first thought. Simple but effective, the subtle glow around the tree is a nice touch.

        neat... you might consider dropping the black strokes around the yellow in the background.

        I like the tree too!

          The tree is definitely the strongest part. I think the background could do with something... Maybe a colour change? Not sure!?! Something to convey some sort of message or feeling.

            PrintDriver
            Monitors are sort of a matter of opinion.
            I do all my pre-press work on not so expensive Viewsonic monitors in a dual monitor setup. I already know that for print, my monitor will not accurately...
